preach it brother! I was just doing a search today on the city's website and scrolled through about 5 pages of stuff that had nothing to do with what I was looking for. I finally gave up, went to Google and got better results on the first page.

This stuff you're talking about drives me nuts. What's with all the PDF's??
Or my favourite - when they have PDF's from a public meeting but they have all the pages sideways. You not only have to open another reader, you need to start flipping around all the pages, or turn your computer sideways to read them.

Another beauty (this might just be due to the fact that I'm in Safari, on a Mac - but still, get with the times. Lots of people have Mac's) is when you type something in the search field and hit enter. It brings you back to the city's homepage with no results. I need to actually click on the little 'ok' button beside the search field to bring up results. This might be the only website left on planet earth that doesn't allow me to hit 'enter'.

Hopefully some IT guy at city hall reads your piece. If they're going to bother having a web presence and make info available to the public, at least pretend it's not 1993 anymore and do it right.
